The Benefits of Far Infrared Heat Panels

Hot yoga is an amazing practice. Aside from generating heat, the  panels installed in all Niyama's Shalas provide a number of health benefits. 


Far infrared panels keep the studio air clean and free from drafts

All of Niyama's New Jersey Yoga Shalas (Randolph, Sparta and Roseland)  have Far Infrared Heat Panels installed, which are used to heat the shalas for our hot yoga classes. These panels provide uniform heated environmental conditions on the mat, without draft, stirring of dust, pollen, germs or bacteria.

Imagine getting a spa treatment while you practice yoga!

Far infrared heat therapy is a healing therapy used in progressive spas and places of healing. Interestingly, current research conducted in Taiwan has measured significant far infrared energy emitted from the hands of Reiki masters. Thus, when you attend a hot yoga class at Niayama's Shalas, you are getting the equivalent of a Reiki treatment while you practice!

8 Amazing benefits of far infrared heat 

1- Far infrared improves blood circulation

Scientists in Japan report that in the far infrared treatment of clogged capillary vessels, heat expands the capillaries. This increases blood flow and improves circulation.


2- Far infrared strengthens the cardiovascular system

Far infrared treatment can strengthen the cardiovascular system by causing heart rate and cardiac output to increase and diastolic blood pressure to decrease. Research by NASA in the early 1980s led to the conclusion that far infrared stimulation of cardiovascular function would be the ideal way to maintain cardiovascular conditioning in American astronauts during long space flights.

3- Far infrared detoxifies the body


Far infrared thereby promotes the elimination of fats, chemicals and toxins from the blood. When toxins accumulate, blood circulation is blocked and cellular energy is impaired. When large water molecules are exposed to far infrared light the molecules of water begin to vibrate. The vibration breaks down the water molecules, releasing encapsulated gasses and other toxic materials.


4- Far infrared helps people lose weight and eliminate cellulite

Far infrared therapy improves the metabolism and even dissolves fat cells! In conjunction with a proper eating program patients find that they lose weight and reduce cellulite.

5- Far infrared kills bacteria, fungi, viruses and parasites

 This treatment helps people who have stubborn parasites that have not responded to traditional herbal therapy.  Candida is also significantly helped with these treatments.

6- Far infrared boosts the immune system

Far infrared stimulates increased production of white blood cells and T-cells.  People who have coughs or colds they can’t seem to recover from experience significant relief with far infrared treatments.  Similarly, patients with auto-immune disorders like chronic fatigue, lupus and M.S. feel that their core energy is strengthened in successive treatments.


7- Far infrared helps with pain management

As muscle fibers are heated, far infrared reduces soreness on nerve endings and muscle spasms. As a result, people experience a rapid reduction of swelling, inflammation and associated pain. 

8- Far infrared calms down the autonomic nervous system

This makes people feel more relaxed.  It is therefore an excellent treatment for insomnia, depression and anxiety. After successive exposure to far infrared, people report feeling lighter and happier.
